New Flight Attendant Wings Become a Required Uniform Item March 1

Date: February 29, 2024

In September of 2023, MEC Grievance 11-23 was filed over the new combined wings/name bar. Section 25.F. of our Contract states, “The company shall furnish insignia (wings) required to be worn by the Flight Attendant and, shall replace the insignia when necessary due to normal wear. Flight Attendants may remove their name insignia when off the aircraft.”

The grievance was filed because the contract requires the company to furnish insignia (wings) and insignia with our name on it. With the name bar attached to the wings, it is one single insignia versus two pursuant to the Contract.

The company has previously announced that effective March 1, the new combined wings/name bar is a required uniform piece. Since the new wings include our name, pursuant to the Contract, the new wings do not need to be worn when we are off the aircraft. Additionally, wings that need replacement due to normal wear is done so at company expense. Should your wings need to be replaced, contact your base uniform coordinator.
